Serena Williams Orders Espresso Mid-Match, Goes On to Dominate Opponent

Serena Williams is a by any means necessary kind of athlete. That's why she's a champ.

Down 0-6 in a Hopman Cup match against Italy's Flavia Penneta, Williams asked officials if she could get a shot of espresso because she was feeling tired. “I mean, I don’t know if it’s allowed. Is it allowed?,” she asked.

Apparently it was. A ball girl soon came on court with a double shot, and Serena went on to win the match 0-6, 6-3, 6-0.
